A Milton woman has been charged with vehicular homicide in a hit-and-run that killed a 13-year-old boy and injured his father, Forsyth County officials said.

Katie Pancione, 38, was arrested Tuesday, two days after Leonardo Camacho died in a hospital, according to Forsyth sheriff's office spokeswoman Stacie Miller.

Camacho was walking on the sidewalk with his father about 6:30 p.m. June 16 when  a driver on Kelly Mill Road in Cumming ran over a curb, hit him and left the scene, officials said.

The man attempted to get the boy out of the way but injured his leg in the process, according to Miller. Both were taken to a hospital, and the child was then flown to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta with life-threatening injuries.

Pancione was caught after deputies found an Infiniti QX56 with a damaged front end that matched the hit-and-run vehicle’s description. She was taken into custody Tuesday along Jason Drive, but was held in a facility before being taken to the Forsyth County Jail.

Pancione remains in jail with no bond, records show. In addition to homicide by vehicle, she is charged with DUI, hit-and-run resulting in serious injury or death, reckless driving, failure to maintain lane and driving too fast for conditions.
